Openings: David LaChapelle – “The Raft” @ de Sarthe Fine Art (Hong Kong)

Marking his second major exhibition in Hong Kong, David La Chapelle revealed a new body of work with de Sarthe Fine Art this past week.

Openings: Tim Barber – “2001” @ Primary Photographic Gallery

After a hugely successful US debut solo exhibition, Untitled Photographs (covered), with OHWOW in the fall, Tim Barber quietly unveiled a new body of work over the weekend. Hosted by Primary Photographic Gallery, the New York-based photographer showed a collection of work distinctly more colorful and more nature oriented, an apparent departure from the predominate portraiture focus of his last exhibition.

Teaser: Richard Prince @ Gagosian Gallery (HK)

As an enticing preamble to Asia’s preeminent contemporary art fair, Art HK 11, on tap later this week, Gagosian Gallery will offer up an exhibition of work from Richard Prince at their Central Hong Kong space. Opening Tuesday, May 24th, the show will mark the first solo exhibition in Asia for the iconic, if not controversial, photographer, painter, and serial reappropriator, as seen through his infamous “rephotograph” series.

Openings: Tracey Emin – ‘Love is What You Want’ @ Hayward Gallery

The major retrospective of work by Tracey Emin, Love is What You Want, is currently on at London’s Hayward Gallery at Southbank Centre. AM attended the preview on Tuesday evening and was duly impressed. If you’re fond of Emin’s intensely personal, confessional and often provocative art, you’ll love this show. There’s certainly a great deal to take in, covering every phase of her career and the wide diversity of media she’s worked with: installation, embroidered and appliquéd blankets, neon, film, animation, photography, sculpture, painting, drawing […]

Marking his third solo […]

Streets: JR (Los Angeles) Part III

Apparently, TED prize winner JR is still in Los Angeles working on his massive The Wrinkles of the City project. We thought he had finished the series of walls (see Venice &  Melrose) and left town after his TED acceptance speech, but now we see a new piece is up on the side of the Sushi Roku in West Hollywood.  The French street photographer must have taken a break to enjoy his part of the Art in the Street exhibition. Take a look at another pic […]
